What's the best sugarpaste to work with.

What size tine depends on how many people you want to serve.  Under 25 people use an 8" round and a 4 or 5"er.  You will have more than enough cake to serve about 30-35.

Another way to judge is how many servings the recipe you are using serves.  Most cake recipes (scratch or mix) serve about 20. 

A great recipe for you to cover with sugarpaste is my *original* WASC.

AS shown in this  ^^  link it is a bit jumbles and hard to read.  I hope you can make it out.

I cake vouch for the kakeladi recipe. :) awesome. Best part of her recipe is the stuff she wrote about flavoring. I LOVE her vanilla, almond, butter combo----THE BOMB!!!! I find the often recommended recipe has too much almond flavor and it over powers the cake. 

Her cake is a little "denser" than the others, so great for stacking and carving. Kudos to you Kakeladi, and good luck sprinkles!
